Juicing is marching right alongside me headed into spring. It’s all part of the spring training and revive!
What do you think of when you think “juice?” Perhaps it is, “I love the juices from Jamba Juice or another similar place.” Or maybe it is, “Juicing is for major detoxing.” Or maybe even, “Juicing is too much work.”
Here is why my “juicing” days are none of the above:
- Pre-made juices are not in my vocabulary. The amount of sugar in those is insane. And besides, if I’m going to spend money on a beverage outside of my house, surely it’s going to be Peets (or Caribou when I’m in MN)!
- I am not detoxing. Period! I’m not juicing to lose weight, and I don’t believe in liquid diets.
- I am busy – very busy. If juicing were too much work, I would not do it.
I purchased my juicer a few weeks ago. I decided it was time to invest in a juicer. After my major flare-up last week, and various flare-ups during the past few years, I knew that a juicer would be a great investment. Juicing allows me to get a ton of nutrients, but without the stomach problems that typically accompany those foods when eaten raw.

I’m still dying for a Vitamix, but I settled on a Breville instead (so that I could also get my iPad2 a few days later)! I’m okay with the Breville, but I’m not in love with it. It definitely gets the job done.
This has been my favorite juice recipe so far:
I “top it off” with coconut milk.
And then I enjoy the final product.
Whatever your reason for wanting to try juicing may be, know that it reason enough. I believe in juicing for me, as a lifestyle.
